Community cats can live long, healthy lives outdoors, but in the winter they need a little help from their human friends to thrive.Read More
BRRRRR! Snow and cold arrived early this year, and Regina Cat Rescue is busier than ever trying to get cats off the street and out of the cold.
Here are just a few of our recent rescues that were nabbed from urgent situations and tugged on the heartstrings of rescuers and supporters!
If you follow RCR, you’ve probably seen posts about tapping on the hood of your car in winter just in case a cat has crawled up under the hood seeking warmth. Sweet Mulligan is one cat who learned the hard way that this is not a good way to keep warm! He was injured by a fan belt but thankfully his injuries aren’t as bad as they look and he’s recovering nicely in a foster home.
This pretty little tortie mama raised her litter of kittens on a local golf course, traveling miles daily and avoiding predators to keep her kittens safe. One of her kittens was run over by a car, and another found a home with a staff member. With winter approaching and the golf course scheduled to close for the season, the staff reached out for help. The mama and remaining kitten were rescued soon afterward and doing well in foster care.
Little Totoro is just a young fellow at a year of age, but he’s already had a hard life. When he was rescued, he was full of scars and scab wounds and a heavily bleeding neck wound. Sadly, this sweet boy tested positive for the Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), likely contracting the disease through multiple cat fights. He has the potential to live a long and healthy life with special care.
These are just a few of the cats that RCR has recently rescued, as summer came to an abrupt end and cold temperatures set in.
